My darling daughter K has the sniffles. She actually ran a fever last Friday evening that made us miss the Bible Study. The fever quickly occurred. She was sneezing and feeling tired Friday afternoon and that night her body temperature rose suddenly. I didn’t sleep very well because I was monitoring her temperature. Gladly there’s a fever and pain reliever in our cabinet. There was a birthday invitation the next day but we didn’t go because DD was not feeling well.
On Sunday, K was feeling a little lively so we were able to attend another birthday party held on that day. The sky cleared up which is very nice because it was raining these past two weeks already. It was sunny and breezy. K had a wonderful time playing with her friends.
As a parent, we worry a lot when our children gets sick. Common colds and cough cannot be avoided because we can catch them whether we like it or not. To get rid of it and to keep it from getting worse, an effective cold medicine and home remedies should be taken.
Honey Lemon Tea – Hot water, lemon juice, honey, tea (drink every night to sooth the throat and help loosen the mucus)
Orange Juice – Drink one cup of orange daily
Warm Bath – Take a quick warm bath before bedtime to feel fresh (except if running a fever)
Sponge Bath – If you are not feeling well to take a warm bath, a sponge bath will do. Wet a hand towel with warm water and wipe all over the body.
In addition the above mentioned home remedies, eating more fruits, vegetables, drinking more water everyday, and plenty of rest can help get rid of sickness completely.
Cold and Cough – You can buy medicine for cough and colds over the counter. Always follow the dosage on stated on the label.
Nasal Spray – Nasal sprays are great to sooth the nasal passages. Nasal passages can get swollen from sneezing and blowing the nose. Nasal sprays can help moisturize and sooth them.
As of today, my darling daughter is back to her active self. Though there still coughing here and there but she is getting better and better. She’s healthy so sickness doesn’t stay long.
